Navigating the Three Pillars of Post-Acquisition Performance Improvement
In the professional and tech service sectors, maintaining momentum following a successful acquisition is vital, and operationalising the actions of the pre-acquisition Operational Due Diligence is often the first step.
Although each roadmap is very specific to the circumstances of the acquired business, in our experience, performance improvement tends to fall into one of three categories:
Strategy – developing and implementing a business strategy or reviewing and aligning business governance.
Operations – developing or aligning a target operating model, including designing business policies and processes, and the resultant organisation structures.
Infrastructure – designing, procuring, and implementing appropriate systems to support the strategic and operational intentions of the business (e.g. professional service automation).
At Garwood, we have worked extensively with the leaders and investors of businesses in the professional & tech service sectors to deliver post-acquisition change.
Each engagement utilises the sector-specific frameworks and tools Garwood developed or adopted, drawing upon the team’s extensive leadership experience in the professional and tech services sectors.
